Alif Hotel
Ranked #186 of 255 Hotels in Lisbon
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Stayed 2 nights at Alif, hotel is located in Campo Pequeno, safe area at 15-20 mins taxi or metro (nearby) from the city center. Very convenient, rooms are clean and enough spacious, comfortable overall. Staff was very helpful in answering questions and really reserved. Confirmed that rooms on the top floors are nicer (we switched from a room with moquette to another without - more suitable for us). Metro station is pretty near outside. Lisbon is wonderful and Alif is definetely a good starting point to reach all the attractions and the airport (15 mins by taxi)

Room Tip: Try to book on upper floors

stayed here one night on a layover, 10 minutes from the airport- beware of cab drivers who take you on tours! bidet and very nice bathroom, definitely more than i expected for the money. Dont think it is in a very convenient location for tourists although the bull fighting arena is next door.

I found my experience to be very underwhelming. I would be OK with the hotel for a night or two, but never recommend it for a vacation. The Staff at the reception seemed rude; like they were upset that they had to check-in another guest to the hotel. I had trouble accessing the WI-FI internet (which was NOT free) and they would not help me, but rather acted with dimissive disdain.

I had to use the hotel safe, and like WI-FI, it was a daily charge of 1.5 Euro. The rooms provided the minimum of comfort, but were generally cold and uninviting.

I would never recommend or go back to this hotel.

The hotel is located close to the subway station "Campo pequeno" that connects to the main city and to Lisbon international airport. Taxi is 100 mts away and it costs 5,50 € to get to the airport. The hotel offers a full and varied breakfast. The campo pequeno bullring and commercial area are 1 min walking distance. Hotel staff was very helpful. The room was clean and had everything important ...I only missed the fridge. Internet was expensive so I did not used it.

Loved my time in Lisbon and this hotel helped to make it so. Located outside the centre but so well connected by the metro and bus. Transport is so good in Lisbon. Hote is very clean and there are a lot of English language channels available [for those that applies to] I would definitely come back here.

Stayed here for four nights with my husband - I was attending a conference but it was more of a pleasure trip than a business one. The hotel staff were lovely and helpful, the breakfast buffet had everything you needed and was very diverse. Our room was cozy, clean and even though it faced the street, there was hardly any noise. The bed was so comfortable we had trouble getting up in the morning! It was also surprisingly big. Towels and linen were changed every day and I really liked the modern and minimalist decor of our room. The hotel's location is wonderful - the metro is right across the street and the fabulous Rodizio Grill restaurant is within a 3 minute walk. Many English speaking channels on television so after a long day's walk we could fall asleep watching our favorite shows. The only downside is the 10 euro per day they charge for Wi-Fi. Having said that, that not enough to make me dislike such a wonderful, accommodating place. If we're ever in Lisbon again, this will be our first choice.

I only stayed one night in the hotel but it was enough to have a good impression. Localization is great (next to the Metro and a shopping mall).

Rooms were also big and clean. The only problem was I found a bug in the bathroom but I considered it as an exception since the hotel looked really clean.

Breakfast was also OK.

The negative side is that you have to pay for Internet (and the net quality is really bad).

Room Tip: Ask for a room with jacuzzi
